"Afternoon Delight" was one of Sue Garman's favorite patterns. This wonderfully scrappy quilt is truly a delight to make with its combination of simple appliqué and Double Nine-Patch blocks and modified Shoo Fly blocks. Each month you will work on pieced and appliquéd blocks, and in the final month, you will assemble the blocks and add the outer border. The finished quilt measures approximately 86 1/2" inches square.

Let's use this Topic "Afernoon Delight Show and Tell" as a place to show off your beautiful blocks. That way, you know where to come to see what everyone is doing.

The topics that apply to each month are a good place to ask questions or make suggestions for each block.

AND when you post your photos to Social Media, like Instagram, Facebook, etc., use either of these hash tags so everyone there will be able to find our wonderful work:

I decide to do all of my shoo fly blocks. Totally scrappy from my stash. Also completed the applique blocks using the appliquik tools. All hand appliquéd. That took quite awhile! But I’m happy with the end results.

Thank you very much! Helen W had asked about what applique techniques were being used, and my note to her on January 31st (message #146592) describes what has been working for me thus far. Each block has been either a skill refresher or a new learning experience :)

I finished the fourth applique block today. After seeing last month's blocks, I decided to make a change to how I will be using my stash fabrics. This meant remaking last months Shoo Fly blocks and I still have to remake last month's busiest block in order for it to match my new changes. Yes, I'm making it scrappy, but I need a bit more order to it than most ;)

Your blocks are stunning perfect fussy cutting of your fabric choices and your workmanship is admirable. What appliqué technique are you using needle turn? Backbasting? Just love it!

A happy coincidence! I have admired Sue Garman's work for many years. Just prior to the New Year, I viewed the "Afternoon Delight" quilt at the New England Quilt Museum as part of an exhibit of her work. To have this quilt be the TQS 2020 BOM is icing on the cake. I love the timeless appeal of this beautiful folk art quilt and look forward to spending pleasant time on this project knowing there is a TQS support system of advice and tips in place :)

The blocks for January are attached.
